Curry Chicken Burgers and Bombay Potatoes

Another recipe from Rachel Ray, but I substituted ground chicken for the ground turkey.

Curry Turkey (Chicken) Burgers
1 1/3 pounds ground turkey breast, the average weight of 1 package
2 scallions, thinly sliced
A handful cilantro, chopped very fine, about 2 tablespoons, optional
1 inch piece fresh ginger, grated or minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
Coarse salt
2 tablespoons mild curry paste or a handful of curry powder
Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil
5 crusty rolls, split
Bib or leaf lettuce
Sliced vine-ripe tomatoes
Mango chutney

Combine first 8 ingredients and form into 5 patties.
Brush or drizzle patties with extra-virgin olive oil. Grill patties 6 minutes on each side on indoor electric grill or pan fry for same amount of time in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Pile patties on split crusty rolls with lettuce, tomato, and chutney spread liberally on roll tops as a condiment.

Jamie Oliver's Bombay Potatoes
from my friend Mo

3 T. vegetable oil
1 t. mustard seeds
pinch ground cumin
1 t. turmeric
1 t. ground coriander
1 t. garam masala
1 t. chili powder
1 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
2 T. butter
6 potatoes, parboiled and cut into cubesa
3 raw tomatoes, diced
handful cilantro, chopped

Heat the oil in a pan and fry the spices for a few minutes. Add the butter, then the potatoes, making sure they are completely coated in the spicy mixture. Cook for about 15 minutes, then stir in the tomatoes and cilantro.
